I took it in to have the timing belt changed. When I picked up the car after the timing belt change, it was making a grinding/pinging noise at the power steering pump and hose. The shop said they did not touch the power steering belt when they changed the timing belt.
They replaced the steering pump with a new honda steering pump and when I picked it up it was not making any noise. After about 45 minutes of driving, the noise returned at the power steering pump. It gets worse when I'm stopped and turn to right and left.
Mechanic believes there could be debris in the line or rack. They want to replace the pump and re bleed.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
